2:00 p.m. HST | 4:00 p.m. AKDT | 5:00 p.m. PDT | 6:00 p.m. MDT | 7 PM CDT | 8 PM EDT

Most people – with or without MS – get health insurance from different sources as they grow from childhood to adulthood, through their working lives and beyond. Understanding how eligibility for health insurance from these different sources can impact you and your family, how and when to enroll and other key factors is especially important for people with MS to assure their continued access to care and financial security. This webinar will provide a basic overview of the different ways people with MS and their families can get and keep health insurance, how to plan for transitions (such as moving from employer-based coverage to Medicare), and what to expect as an enrollee in a private or public health insurance plan.
